I am running Firefox 94.0 in a couple of Linux Mint systems.

My main desktop computer, with a 3.8 GHz 6-core AMD Ryzen 5 processor on an MSI B450-A PRO MAX MB with 16 GB RAM, has had Linux Mint 19.3 installed for over a year. Just today, Firefox, which has also been installed in this OS for a long time, exhibited extreme slowness. I did an online search, and found that the slowness was cured by using the Troubleshoot Mode, but none of the suggestions I found solved the problem in normal mode. So, I went into Settings and turned off hardware acceleration. That solved the problem, somewhat ironically. The hardware acceleration seemed to accomplish deceleration instead. So my browser works, but there is something wrong with hardware acceleration in Firefox.

On a new install of Linux Mint 20.04, I recently experienced frequent crashing of Firefox just after clicking on a link. I tried online solutions, which didn't help, but then I turned off - - guess what - - hardware acceleration, and no more crashes. That is what motivated me to turn off hardware acceleration in Firefox on my Linux Mint 19.3 machine today.

I don't really have a problem to solve, but I don't know of a better place to submit a bug report, so I am hoping you will pass this on to the developers.

How do I remove Colorways completely? I don't use it and it's a waste of space. I used to have more control of features in Firefox. Now you're putting themes I can't delete? Firefox is really starting to suck! No wonder everyone is leaving for Chrome. I'm about to be one of those leaving Firefox.

Paypal's going through making me change my password, and I used the password generator for that. I guess something went wrong again, because it wants me to change my password yet again.

The problem with Firefox, is that when I hit Suggest Strong Password, all I get is the same one I already used. This is no help. Paypal says "The password has been used recently. Please try another one."

I expect it would generate a fresh one if I restarted Firefox, but that isn't always convenient, depending on what's loaded in other tabs, or in the process of downloading. So let's skip suggestions of restarting.

How do I get Firefox's password generator to generate a fresh password?

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

A lot of webGL apps are very low framerate (and lie about their framecounts), for example: https://webglsamples.org/blob/blob.html This runs smoothly at 60 fps in chromium, but in firefox it behaves badly. The fps counter flickers as either 53 or 80, but in reality it is maybe 15fps or lower and very stuttery. The resolution, number of blobs, or size of the window does not change anything.

  • If I enter Troubleshooting Mode, it all returns to working order. The FPS is fixed

I have tried disabling ALL extensions, changing to the default theme, disabling hardware acceleration, deleting cache+cookies+history

I installed firefox developer edition and checked it there, and it was at 60 fps, until I logged into Sync, when it then dropped.


I use KDE manjaro linux and have hardware that is definitely good enough to run the content at high framerates normally (everything works perfect in chromium)

I expect that each page / tab in firefox is placed in its own thread.

However, I experience that when one page gets stuck .. javascript is caught in a wait loop .. that this affects other pages.

Is there something in FireFox that I can change to insure that each page is in it's own thread, and doesn't affect another page's performance?

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

Hi! Does anybody know how to disable browser closing by ctrl+q shortcut? It is too close to ctrl+w and sometimes I close the whole browser instead of one tab. Moreover it is really useless and stupid feature since I have alt+f4. Why I need another shortcut which do the same stuff? And why developers ignore this issue which was reported on several forums? I tried install extension which disable it but it doesn't work for me.

I recently changed from Ubuntu Gnome to KDE Plasma. Now, when I'm running Firefox (v83) and click "Save as" to save a file from a web page, Firefox gives me a file list with directories mixed in alphabetically, rather than at the top. This is new behavior to me; I don't know if it's new with v83 (I was previously running v82), or if it's a KDE implementation issue.

Either way, I HATE having to scroll down through page after page of files and folders to find my destination folder. Since the dialog box also incorporates full-row select, I can't even click in the file list and type the first letter of my destination folder.

Please tell me there is a way to change this behavior and have Firefox's "Save as" dialog sort the files with directories at the top!

Thanks.

Hi, Linux user here. So I've set up fallback fonts for Arabic script languages, both using system configuration files and the Firefox preferences. However, on websites, the Arabic text is not displayed in the font I have chosen, rather other fonts. It used to be so that all text using Arabic script used the font I had chosen, but now it's only true for when I type in the address bar, the window titles, etc, not for websites. How do I fix this?

I had to reinstall Ubuntu 20.04 because I removed vital Python 2 and 3 and it broke. Before doing this I was logged into my Firefox profile and should have had my bookmarks and extensions synced. I do not see any reason why this would not be the case. However, after my reinstall of Ubuntu and logging into Firefox profile all of my bookmarks and extensions are gone. I tried checking around Firefox and it only shows bookmarks and extensions from after my reinstall. I have not performed a backup since I reinstalled Ubuntu, but those bookmarks are there. So I don't understand why I can't find my old bookmarks and extensions from before my Ubuntu issue, because I was logged into my Firefox account. My Firefox account information should have been saved to my account not my computer anyway. Please help me I had a lot of important bookmarks on there, but can't remember all of them.
